Halloween is just a few days away, which means that it is time to lock in your costume if you haven't already. While this is a great time of year to transform yourself into whatever creature or character you like, it is also important that you remember to take care of your skin as best as you can. While this blog has previously covered ways you can help keep your skin glowing and healthy, we will take a special look in this post at ways you can safely paint up and decorate your face without fear of breakouts or other blemishes.
Here are a few ways to non-toxically paint your face:
- Avoid metallic glitter: Glitter will be a pain for you to put on and remove either way, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends using only polyester-based glitter. Anything metallic or made from other substances will run the risk of reacting badly with your skin.
- Stay away from your eyes: If you are using special makeup or other products on your face, be sure to keep everything away from you eyes. No matter how safe you think something is, you can always run the risk of getting materials in your eyes and causing damage. For that part of your face, just stick to the makeup you use normally.
- Use skin-safe products: Don't think outside of the box when it comes to finding materials for you to paint your face with. While this might seem a bit obvious, it is very important that you only paint your face with products that have been approved for skin contact.
